Saint Bernard
Hall of Fame Record Holders


Barry
 

Barry
The Most Famous Record Holder
 of the Saint Bernard Kingdom

Credited for saving over 40 lives in the Swiss Alps in the 1800s
Let us not forget the roots of our breed and the record of which we are the most proud.

The dogs listed on this page have set records for Saint Bernards in many of the different Hall of Fame categories.  These records not only give recognition to the dog and handler teams which we can all be proud of, but they also set goals for us to try and achieve or surpass.  The goals to preserve, protect and improve the breed we love are never ending. The records reflect where we are today.  To review the records of all Saint Bernards, visit the Database room
